Now open: New York's big gayhotel

Called OUT NYC, Manhattan’s newly-opened boutique hotel is completely gay-focused – but straights are welcome too.

Whether you’re after a hedonistic weekend or a relaxing breakaway, this hotel has it all – a sunbathing deck and fitness/health centre, a nightclub, two hot tubs, and even a mysterious and beautiful ‘secret garden’ among its outdoor spaces.

“Of the 50 million tourists that came to New York City last year, it’s estimated that 8 million were LGBT travelers,” says OUT NYC’s co-owner Ian Reisner.

“We expect The OUT NYC will become the epicentre of gay life for LGBT New Yorkers,” he tells Reuters

Rooms range from US$200 a night. Click here for a gallery of images showing off the new hotel and find its official website here.

Marriage equality became legal in the state of New York last year – since then LGBTI tourism has increased substantially as same-sex couples travel from across the world to have their relationships recognised.

sounds very much like the fabulous Axel hotels in Barcelona, Berlin and Buenos Aires (do they only open them in cities starting with 'B' ?) where the staff wear T-shirts which say 'hetero-friendly' :)

Having the best place to stay and enjoy you always consider the services that they offered.
